Naval Hospital, Camp Pendleton, CA 1970-72. Hot and plentiful. For the bull riders, motorcycle riders, and AIT recruits who "ran into a door, Sir" and had wired broken jaws, the staff would take their breakfast, lunch, or dinner order and blend it into a smoothie with a straw. Sometimes didn't look too appetizing with the veggies, but it got the job done. Some kids gained weight. ANY chow hall meal was better than long rats in RVN. :-) Met my wife at CPPEND 42 years ago. All good. Be Well.

Toss up between 82nd Avn Bde and SF chow hall @ Bragg. SF was all contractors and food was served from those chrome or silver servers with candles under it at one point.

SSBN 731 Blue. Our counterparts had cooks that won the Ney award for best small galley afloat. They could cook the same food our cooks made and there was no comparison.

Naval Hospital DFAC, Guantanamo Bay Cuba was fantastic. A big breakfast there after P.T. in that Caribbean humidity was always a treat.

Fort Lewis Officer's Open Mess...FLOOM. Fantastic food!

Of course, I had to buy a sport coat to get in, but it was worth it. The coat was a ghastly red blazer and cost $5 off the clearance rack at the PX. I never wore it again.

Oh, and a very close second to the now-closed officers club at the Presidio of SF. Clinton gave the place to the hippies...:-(

Johnston Island '89-'90. They brought in professional civilian chefs to keep the civilian contractors happy and us Army guys reaped the benefits.

I would have to say the best chow hall was when I went to Shepphard AFB for tech school. Of course, the fact that it was all free helped too

Chiefs mess on the USS Independence CV62 was good, best food was the year I spent in Danang, until the Army took our galley over my last couple of months there.

McClellan AFB enlisted chow hall, 1972. There was an older SMSGT who ran the place, and he took it seriously. It was called "The Camellia Room". Best fried chicken I think I have eaten anywhere. Eggs and steaks cooked to order, and a damn fine array of pastries.

I never served in the military, but working as a DoD civilian, the chow at MCAS El Toro was pretty good. Loved the S-O-S.

I'm going to have to change my view from my previous post here. My now best Chow Hall I've eaten at was Camp Holland DFAC on MNB-TK prior to the start of the retrograde, food was amazing, the food at Camp Ripley was good as well before they shut it down, never got to eat at the SF camp on base.

Flightline chow hall at bagram in the first half of 09. It was run by soldiers, so you could actually get your eggs however you wanted them, onlike the contractor run dfacs.

Da fuq!? That galley was worse than RTC! Horrible staff and stale food... Flightline Cafe at NAS Jacksonville is staffed by actual CS' and is leaps-and-bounds better by comparison.
